In this Group: Bacilia, Hilza Maruja, Feliciana, Ines Asiria, Calixta Dominga, Lucy Edith, Jaqueline Elvaluz, Maria Candelaria
“Virgen D. Chapi D. Yanacoto” is one of the most united community banks that we have in our agency. The members have been working with EDAPROSPO for 6 years. One of the longest-standing members of this group is 48 year-old Basilia. Basilia is a single mother with four children, one of whom is still a minor. She works in a number of business activities such as: selling clothes to order, selling 'cebiche' (marinated fish) and selling fruit. She makes all of her sales as an itinerant street vendor. She also makes jewelry (necklaces and bracelets). The small income she makes from this work helps her to cover her youngest son's education expenses and her household expenses.

Basilia requested her loan from EDAPROSPO in order to buy jewelry materials (murano glass, cat's-eyes, natural stones, elastic and cotton) for making bracelets and necklaces that her customers have requested from her. She will also make sportswear and shirts for the back-to-school season.

Basilia would like to improve her home so that she can have her own work space. In the photo you can see the 8 members of the group and Inés' husband who goes everywhere with her in order to help her get about since she has a small disability.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
